We have a laneway beside our house and our fence has started to get tagged. Just looking for advice on what might best deter the graffiti.
Should I paint over it as soon as possible, or will they just keep coming back to mark their territory? Or should I see if I can somehow get a local artist to paint a mural - would that be more respected?
Welcome to Workshop. It's great to have you join us. I look forward to reading about your projects and plans.
Sorry to read of your graffiti problem. I'm sure there will be others who have had a similar problem and have some suggestions and advice for you.
Please let me know if you need a hand getting the most from the site.
Our local Vinnes was always getting tagged, and they decided to paint a mural on the building and so far so good. Their reasoning was it was less likely to get tagged if it no longer had the "blank canvas" look
I stopped my tagger by putting a BLACK "X" over their work,
then a week later overpaint.
Another way but expensive is get anti grafitti paint.
They always like to show their friends "their Tag"
I would keep painting over it. They will get the message and go elsewhere.
Yeah, I'm not sure the average tagger respects murals either. City laneways suggest not. I would paint over as quickly as possible because these peanuts like seeing their name everywhere. Keep getting rid of it and I imagine they are likely to go elsewhere for their kicks.
